58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love

58 Surfire Ways to Curate or Create Persuasive Content Your Audience Will Love | Univers de la veille | Scoop.it

I selected this post by copyblogger because this is one of those pieces you can read once but it really comes to life when you're writing that article, blog post, curating someone elses piece. There are so many valuable insights and suggestions, it's definitely worth reading and keeping for those days when you need creative inspiration.

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

*GREAT CURATORS Understand your readers. Know their fears, dreams, and desires. How can you engage with someone you don’t understand?

 

**Don’t write for a large audience. Choose one person, picture him, and write to him as if he’s a friend.

 

**Use a conversational tone of voice. Nobody wants to chat with a company.

 

**Be engaging. Using the word you is the most powerful way to be more engaging.

 

Be remarkable. So much content is out there, how can you stand out?

 

**GREAT Creation or Curation comes from CONTEXT Disclose your point of view, tell your personal story, and develop your own voice.

 

**If your readers feel they know you, they will connect with you.

 

**Use familiar language. Check Twitter, Facebook or Google’s Keyword Tool – and find the wording your readers use.

Make Your Business the Go-To Resource by Curating Great Content

Make Your Business the Go-To Resource by Curating Great Content | Univers de la veille | Scoop.it

This piece is from senseiblog. I selected it because it reaffirms the importance of using content curation as an part of your content marketing strategy.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

"Content doesn’t always have to be content from your organization, your clients just need to be able to access it through you. Let’s be honest, creating enough content to fulfill demand is a daunting task".

 

**Quality content is a sustainable competitive advantage

 

**the ultimate goal of your online presence should be to become a “Go To” source of information that your stakeholders log onto with increasing or sustainable frequency.

 

**Once achieved, the differentiation this status gives you becomes widespread generating respect, appreciation and business from both new and existing customers.

 

 **in the grand scheme of things, content curation is an essential part of carving out a position for your brand.

 

**The best strategy is to aggregate (add context) and create content that best meets the need of your stakeholders.

 

**What’s missing most of the time is the incentive to be social. What is the best incentive?

 

It is the ability to contribute in a meaningful way

 

**by adding context, additional information, linking readers to the source, your opinion or viewpoint, and be acknowledged for that effort.

 

Content creation, content curation and the ability to give meaningful feedback on it effectiveness is a highly engaging way to involve hundreds, if not thousands of internal staff.

Part 1: Another Look At Content Curation - What it Entails & Why it's so Valuable

Part 1: Another Look At Content Curation - What it Entails & Why it's so Valuable | Univers de la veille | Scoop.it

Here's another article about content curation but is't definitely worthy of your time. It was written by Jonathan Crowe for Business2community.

 

In this two-part series, the author's  gives  an explanation of what content curation entails and how it can be a valuable tool in your content marketing strategy.

 

Summary:

 

The author covers a couple of misconceptions about curation and explains why curating third party content can help you become a trusted source and build your brand.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

**Another way to think about content curation is comparing it to networking. 

 

**Members of an audience engage in a larger conversation by connecting them with the latest ideas and innovative leaders in their field

 

** it can also connect them — through comment fields, etc. — with each other.

 

My commentary:

 

**Some people ignore the comment section but this is a place where you can  monitor what your audience is thinking and feeling, while engaging in conversation with them

 

**Curation can generate internal value for your company, as well.
